    there were sauteed mushrooms under the swiss in my burger pics. i sauteed them HARD where they lose all water content and start browning and getting a nice crisp to them. they'll almost have a meat type texture that goes well with... um meat...

    For me, good beef with a sensible amount of fat for flavour. Grilled on the rare side.
    In a wholemeal or brioche bun (No white pap thank you).
    Topped with melted cheddar, a wipe of good English mustard on the bun, and fried onions, or if no onions Branston pickle.
    The salad stuff and gherkins/cornichons should be on the side, not in the bun.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    I like lots of different burger combos, but this has been my recent go-to.

    German potato salad, cole slaw

    Burnt to a crisp.

    No, not well done.

    If I can't snap it, I ain't munching.

    Cook it like you hate it.

    Extra onions.

    My childhood best friend was English. I ate over at their house all the time.

    His mother and father had owned a pub in England before moving to the States.

    I learned how to bake from his Father. I still make pies and tarts the way Rex taught me to.

    Perhaps a burger served on an English Muffin?

    The Red Robin was the hangout for architecture students. I spent many hours there munching, drinking and sketching amid a haze of vegative smoke. The fact that that building was hanging on to the cliff by its toenails didn’t seem to bother us. Then they remodeled it and made the floors level.

    but then they inevitably become burgers that fall about and get really messy to eat
    My son is a big fan. When it gets too messy to pick up he switches to fork and knife.

    Ahh, the world of pies. Flaky pastry, rough puff, short crust, raised hot water paste, not to mention the Scotch mutton pie. I mean do not mention the Scotch pie.
    Steak and ale, steak and kidney, meat and potato, chicken and leek, pork pie, gala pie, game pie, mince and onion, chicken and ham.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Maine salmon burger. When I was there I ordered a salmon sandwich, expecting two slices of bread with salad and tinned salmon, as that's what you'd get here. Instead, I got a bread roll with salad and a fillet of grilled, fresh salmon. Wonderful! It became my staple for the remainder of the visit.

    They are swede, what the Scots mistakenly call turnip.

    Nah, the flesh of a turnip is white not yellow.
